Looking at Jobs. Module 2. Choosing Occupations and Life Roles.
Pfiffner, Karen J.
This module on looking at jobs, the second in a series of three volumes of sex-fair career guidance activities, deals with choosing occupations and life roles. Included in the module are four learning activities and four occupational assessments that have been designed to provide explorations into potential careers for students and, at the same time, to make students consciously aware of sex role influences. Topics addressed in the individual activities include determining individual occupational interests, understanding the effect of personal environment on occupational choice, planning a curriculum based on personal interests and occupational goals, identifying the specific rewards of particular work situations, using sex-fair occupational clusters to look at career choice, using work activities and work situations to identify clusters of occupations, identifying levels of aptitudes, and using regional information in making occupational choices. Each activity contains a concept, a description of the activity, an overall goal, a list of needed materials, instructions for conducting the activity, discussion topics, outcome objectives, and suggestions for follow-up and alternative activities.
